6:01pm
little longer. >> reporter: the supreme court will likely hear the arguments in march and have a decision by the end of june. there are nine justices. it is entirely possible they have nine differ opinions. one thing is for sure, this is an historic moment. juliette goodrich, cbs 5. not only will the supreme court hear the prop 8 case but also a challenge to the national defense of marriage act. >> they've got to solve this as a national level because it's just too much administrative confusion right now. who gets health benefits. who can visit who in the hospital. all of these, which marriage counts. all of these questions. >> lori little calls it an historic time for the supreme court, a decision that is as big as brown versus the board of education which said separate schools for black and white students was unconstitutional. >> this is equivalent to the supreme court take on one of the most devicive sort of
6:02pm
exciting constitutional questions of this generation and deciding that they have to issue an opinion on this. >> so, for now gay marriages in california remain on hold. >> that stays in place and will stay in place until they issue their decision which probably won't be until june. gay couples in san francisco's castro district are cautiously optimistic the nation's high court will rule in their favor. cbs 5 spoke with a number of them about the court's decision today. >> i think it will be a close call. the supreme court may be a 5-4 split depending on how kennedy comes down. >> i was married in san francisco in '04, which was very historic. i'm divorced now and i deserve the freedom to divorce. >> that's like the easy way
6:03pm
out. >> public opinion seems to be shifting towards acceptance of same sex marriage. in 2011 rare salmon gallop poll found for the first time majority of americans support it. >> the battle over same sex marriage has a unique story here in california. we were only the second state to allow it and the only state to then ban it. it began in san francisco back in 2004. over a period of mount, san francisco issued some 4,000 marriage licenses under the direction of the then mayor newsom, but the practice was outlawed with the passage of prop 8 in 2008. that ban was later ruled unconstitutional. same sex marriages will remain on hold until this case is finally settled by the supreme court. for more on today's announcement and reaction, two to cbsf.com. people in san jose are getting a little something extra with their utility bills. not an extra charge or promotion, but as cbs 5's reporter len ramirez shows us, police officers aren't too happy about it. >> for 200,000 households in

6:05pm
up. crime is going. moral has plummeted. we have another six officers that walked out the door just this week. nine more officers are going to be resigning by the end of this month, and this is the type of thing the city sends out. it is just insult to injury >> it is another example of the animosity of city hall and its police officers over pension reform. citizens like eddie gail says it is high time the two sides settle their differences. >> i'm not saying she is right or wrong or this the officers are right or wrong. i am saying there needs to be respect on both sides. >> reporter: delay do have an internal affairs unit where officers investigate officers. reporting live in san jose, len ramirez, cbs 5. in richmond, police are telling people to keep an eye out for this guy. investigators say this is the same suspect from two different

bullied, even physically threatened at school and the district and school aren't doing anything about it. watch what we found when we checked into it. >> the school sign proclaims in bold letters be safe, responsible, respectful. but keep elementary is anything but according to these two fifth graders. >> they punch us, they slap us. >> samantha and autumn say they are constantly bullied in school by two brothers. >> they take our snacks. >> it started last year. >> their parents say they knew there was a problem. >> my daughter coming home crying telling me she is being called names, tramp, whore, slut. >> but the bullying got worse. >> he said i know where you live. i was like how. at that time i looked at his hand and i could see a pocket might have. >> got to the point where a child pulled a knife on our
6:08pm
daughter. we weren't aware of it. >> samantha was too scared to tell but said she did report the incident to her principal. >> there is a lot of things that have happened we don't know about and we're not privy to it because they say it is confidential. if you're not communicating to me how am i to help my child. >> autumn's mother feels the same way. >> my child has made complaints and we have. >> she says the school solution was to keep the girls inside for recess which just made things worse. >> my husband was in the room talking to her and found a crumpled up piece of paper. he looked at it and it was a suicide letter. >> autumn said it was a recent incident in class. >> i felt this movement on my desk. he was pumping my desk. i didn't feel safe. i went home crying. i didn't want to -- i don't know. i really didn't want to -- honestly i didn't want to live that day. >> can you see what the boys

6:10pm
suffer damage. >> obviously i didn't want to live that day. >> if you hear a child saying this you have to investigate it. there are some tax cuts don't stop and do take their life. >> it seems like a culture of this. >> samantha and autumn hope they can make a difference by speaking out. >> we don't want other kids to feel the same way that we're feeling. >> now, the girls' parents say they allowed their daughters to go on camera because they thought it was important for them to speak out. police have told them the investigation will go to the district attorney next week. >> just breaks my heart. what about the boys and their family? >> we did look into that. we are told they are being raised by their dad and he is disabled. according to the police report which we have he says the school never informed him what the boys were targeting the girls and through the disdepartment, dana, he told us he does not want to comment.
